I've been tasked with creating a merchandiser product extract for submission to Linkshare. I've extracted all the product information into a new table in SQL and using SSIS i've exported the table to a CSV file. However that's where I come unstuck.

The requirements also state that I need to do the following:
1. Add a header row to the CSV file in the format: HDR | Merchant id | Company Name | Time Stamp
2. Add a footer row below the product information in the format: TRL | product row count
3.Finally the resultant file name needs to include the date in the format filename_20091407 ie. yyyyddmm

Anyone?

1.  If the header delimiter is the same as detail rows, then all you need to do is include the column names in the first row.
2. This can sometimes be accomplished by using a UNION statement with the same number/type of columns as the rest of the data.  Alternatively you will have to open the file and write the results at the end.
3. You can change this programatically within the SSIS package.

Both the header and the footer are different formats from the product data itself. So there would be no way to join tables or populate the first row. Any other ideas.

3. How do I porgram this in the SSIS package?
